[WINNER OF 2018 PROPERTY MANAGEMENT TEAM OF THE YEAR - RAINE & HORNE NSW/ACT]
While my career has taken me on many interesting journeys across a number of industries, I often say that in a different life I could see myself making furniture; I absolutely loved woodwork when I was at school. This may sound surprising but when you dig deeper, it’s consistent with the type of person I am. I find building both furniture and businesses incredibly rewarding and there’s nothing I love more than seeing the return on my effort of building something from nothing. But it doesn’t stop there, because the pleasure I get out of building things only comes when I am able to deliver something of value to others, which helps them in their life. This is what really drives me as a business owner and has done so in the Real Estate Industry over the last 8 years.
Over the course of my life I have discovered that everything is about relationships. Not only do relationships inside and outside of work bring me huge amounts of fulfilment and joy, I think any great relationship should always benefit both parties equally. By someone deciding to place their trust in me, I am then in the privileged position to be able to help them. That moment when I find out that I have done something that has genuinely helped someone else gives me a huge buzz; I love a ‘win-win’! I think that every strong relationship begins and ends with trust; but you can’t command trust, you have to earn it. How do you do that? You have to be consistent and follow through on your promises.
Of course there is only so much you can do on your own, and a major part of the reward I get as a business owner is working with my fantastic team. Unfortunately I see far too many people stifled and unhappy in their jobs and I see my role as a great way to harness people’s enthusiasm and energy, making them feel valued and happy. It is only in this environment that people can be their best and grow personally and professionally. But the best part is that this doesn’t just impact them; it also has a flow-on effect to our clients, tenants and everyone we come into contact with.
At the end of the day a business is only as good as the team who share the same values and belief around delivering exceptional service to our clients.
“ My relationship started with Trevor back in 2012 when he and his team managed one of my properties in Waterloo. Over the past 4 years Trevor has built a trustworthy relationship and kept me in the loop with local real estate sales and market knowledge – he is s a true professional. As a result, when it came to placing my apartment on the market it was a no brainer to have Trevor market and sell the apartment. Trevor sold the apartment very quickly as we requested because it was a rental and the tenant was vacating and we didn't want it left sitting empty. He was spot on with the price range and had a buyer lined up almost immediately. Trevor was always great to deal with and made the whole process very smooth and easy. I would happily recommend Trevor and his team to anyone looking to buy or sell their home. ”
“ "I have had the pleasure of being one of Trevor's clients for the last two years as a tenant of Diversity and also as a vendor of my unit in the complex. I have found him and the team absolutely fantastic in all dealings with them throughout this period. They are responsive, professional, decisive and easy to do business with. It has been a true pleasure to work with them. In terms of the sale process, Trevor's support and wise counsel was invaluable; and he got us a great result. I would have no hesitation in recommending Trevor and his team to others and would be happy to do so. I hope I can find an opportunity to engage you again. Many thanks. ”
“ Fantastic work. On the market 2 weeks and Trevor had the property sold at a great price. Extremely professional and able to be relied on for honest, trustworthy advice. ”
“ Trevor brought a combination of professional, relaxing and personal experience to our time dealing with him. ”
“ Trevor is always very professional and is 100% dedicated to his work. He helped me to sell my unit achieving great selling price and was giving great recommendations and market outlook. I know him for more than 7 years as his agency was managing multiple properties I owned and would definitely recommend him as a real estate agent. ”
“ Trevor was fantastic in helping us to buy a one bedroom apartment. He provided great service throughout the entire process. Highly recommended. ”
“ We bought a property through Trevor; he was really pleasant to deal with, patient, knowledgeable about the property, the building and the area. We have met some very unpleasant agents during our search and this was such a sharp contrast to most of them. He took time to show us the place and we went back several times. if you can call buying a property "relaxed" this was about as good as it gets. We would definitely use him to sell or buy again. ”
“ Trevor and his team have managed my property since settlement almost 4 years ago. Their professionalism and attention to detail during this time made it an easy decision to select Trevor when it was time to sell. His prompt communication, in depth local knowledge, great customer service and dedication throughout made it a positive experience. ”
